These pictures are taken exactly one year apart. They show two separate scenes where I’m admiring the magic of nature. The top is on a rocky beach on the coast of Colchester, England while I was studying abroad. The bottom is on a freshly snowed lawn in the suburbs of Chicago while I was hanging out with my fiancé and future in-laws. It’s amazing to think about what difference one year makes in a human life.
